"Father, if you are willing,
take this cup from me;
yet not my will, but yours be done."
FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, sometimes you act more like a rebellious teen or a reluctant child than a willing servant. If I could yield My kingly rights in obedience to My Father, can you not willingly submit your will to Me? I love to bless you! When you surrender your heart and will to Me, I can do far more with your life than you ever thought possible. Are you afraid? Will you trust your Father?.
A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
Lord, it would have been so easy for You to take back Your throne without struggle, death, or submission. Yet You submitted Yourself to Your Father and gave me an example to follow. Thank You for surrendering Your life for me.
God wants more than a part—He wants all your heart.
